XJ DRIVING DYNAMICS

Exceptional engines, a lightning fast transmission and a range of advanced driving technologies.

The XJ delivers the comfort and refinement of a luxury car with the responsiveness and driver
involvement of a sports car.

BEAUTY, STRENGTH & AGILITY

The beauty of the XJ is more than skin deep. Its aluminum monocoque construction is strong yet light. Its outstanding rigidity provides confident, precise handling and is designed to absorb the impact of poor road surfaces in its stride.

This advanced body structure also helps the XJ achieve better fuel economy than it would with a heavier steel structure. That's not all – up to 50 percent of the aluminum used in the XJ is from recycled sources.

POWERFUL, RESPONSIVE, SMART

The XJ offers a choice of exceptional engines built to satisfy different driving styles and requirements, but always to ensure outstanding performance and handling.

COMPLETE COMMAND

The 8-speed transmission in the XJ is controlled by the beautifully designed JaguarDrive Selector™, which rises into your hand once the Start/Stop button is pressed. Simply rotate the selector to move from Park to Reverse or Drive. JaguarDrive Control™ offers specific settings for the drivetrain: Dynamic Mode, which modifies transmission shift points while illuminating the Virtual Instruments in red, or Rain/Ice/Snow Mode, providing more progressive throttle control for slippery conditions.4
